Reunion Giving

Your legacy
A class reunion at Wheaton is a milestone – an opportunity to reconnect and reminisce with classmates through special programs and a chance to create a legacy to leave a lasting impact on Wheaton through the class gift.  A planned gift is a great way to support your class and all that you love about Wheaton.

GOLD (Graduates of the last decade) - From the day you graduate until your 10th Reunion, you are automatically a part of Wheaton GOLD.  Wheaton GOLD is about staying engaged by attending events, exploring volunteer opportunities, being philanthropic towards Wheaton, and setting the example of supporting Wheaton at a higher level.

The 25th Reunion program begins the year following your 20th Reunion.

The 50th Reunion cycle begins the year following your 45th Reunion. In addition to celebrating, you and your class will have an opportunity to continue the tradition of leaving a legacy through your philanthropic commitments to Wheaton. The 50th Class Gift is unique in counting all Wheaton Fund and Capital gifts, including outright and declared gifts through your estate, gifts made the four years leading up to Reunion and during your 50th Reunion year, and pledges made the four years after – nine years in total.

You and your classmates are invited to consider making a larger impact with a multi-year comprehensive gift through outright gifts of cash or stock and planned gifts (i.e. bequests, charitable gift annuities, etc.).
